Workplace culture is the personality of any organisation and can be made up of many elements. But what exactly is company culture? Aside from good vibes and great times, how does it impact a business, for the better?
After being cooped up in their homes for two years, now more than ever, people crave people. It’s how we’re wired. We all want to be part of something bigger than us. With studies showing that 86% of job seekers say that healthy work culture is vital for success, it’s not something that employers can ignore. It plays a massive role in retaining and attracting talent so it deserves some consideration.
A well-designed workplace that supports and enhances its team results in better performance for any business. This perfect harmony with workplace design at its heart is one of traits that Thirdway is known for, and it is the epitome of our new business mission to “Redefine the ‘O’ Word”.
Attracting and retaining talent, as well as fostering culture, were huge parts of the brief from client Mountpark. They wanted a large kitchen and breakout area where their team could collaborate and grow their relationships with one another, as well as a games area, lounge and library space to further enhance employee experience.
Similarly, our client Lee & Thompson wanted employees to feel like they were stepping into a members only club. They opted for luxury finishes as well as a flexible space that allowed for moveable glass walls to support both private meetings and large social events with the 10-metre-long kitchen island come bar area.
For both of these clients, it was culture at the heart of all decision making and this played a huge factor in the success of both projects. Our belief in our O Word mission has always played a huge part in our work and it’s projects such as these that show that the proof really is in the pudding.
